I've finally managed to convince my partner (longterm Canon user) to switch to Nikon. Main reason is she wants a Full Frame and I already have a load of FF Nikon Glass.

We both regularly shoot 35mm Primes and I already have the Nikon 35mm 1.4 so I need another one. Rather than buying another Nikon Lens I'm looking at either the new Sigma 35mm or one of the Zeiss 35mm MF's.

Does anyone have experience with the Nikon vs Sigma or Zeiss?

Apart from speed and price what are the major differences between the Zeiss 1.4 and 2.0 MF Lenses? I've read that the 1.4 isn't sharp until its stopped down to 2.0.

Thanks in advance.
